Bill Beekman Named "Acting" MSU President

Bill Beekman Named

ESPN's report details incidents involving MSU's football program involving 16 players since Dantonio took over in 2007. I'm here tonight to say that any accusations of my handling of any complaints of sexual assault individually are completely false.

"I'm a Spartan. I bleed green".

Additionally, students attending the evening basketball game are encouraged to wear teal T-shirts for a "Teal Out" of the Izzone. "Michigan State keeps saying that 'we didn't know.' Who should I have told?" But the university last week asked Michigan's attorney general to conduct a review.

Earlier in the week, the march was planned as a call for Simon's resignation.

Under the Michigan Constitution, the governor can remove or suspend public officers for "gross neglect of duty", corruption or "other misfeasance or malfeasance".

Nassar was also accused of molesting other young gymnasts while employed by USA Gymnastics, the sport's US governing body. During that time, he sexually assaulted hundreds of young women and girls in his care, some of which were Olympic medalists such as Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, Gabby Douglus, and McKayla Maroney. The USOC had threatened to decertify the organization, which besides picking USA national teams is the umbrella organization for hundreds of clubs across the country.

Many wore teal and awareness ribbons as a symbol of change. USAG said it "embraces the requirements".

Hannum, who was treated by disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar, reached out to Nike about the apparel company's partnership with Michigan State.

USA Gymnastics also argued that, because Nassar was a volunteer rather than a paid employee, it is not responsible for his actions.

Hollis oversaw the athletic department for over a decade, officially taking on the role of AD on January 1, 2008 after more than a decade working within the department in various roles. He's the second university official to step down this week.

The House committee's letter to USA Gymnastics says the Nassar allegations "raise serious concerns about your organization's ability to oversee your sport and protect your athletes from abuse and mistreatment".

Cranberries' Dolores O'Riordan Mourned by Thousands at Public Memorial in Ireland
As the church has a limited capacity of only 200 places, attendance is strictly reserved for extended family and close friends. On Monday her body will be removed to Ballybricken, ahead of funeral mass on Tuesday at St Ailbe's Church.

USA government shuts down for the 18th time
If the government were to shut down, the military is considered essential and would still report for duty. If there was a prolonged lapse in funding a "limited number" of workers may be placed on furlough .

Facebook and YouTube are removing 'Tide Pod Challenge' videos
The NRPC said they've received three calls from people in their service area after someone ingested a Tide Pod. "DOING LAUNDRY. So far in 2018, there have been 37 reported cases among teenagers - half of them intentional, according to the data.

USA Gymnastics and Michigan State did not respond to requests for comment on whether they would resume settlement talks. William Strampel, who was dean of Michigan State's College of Osteopathic Medicine and has been named in lawsuits by victims, announced last month he was taking a leave of absence for medical reasons. "I grew up it Lansing", Lemke said. Previously, he served as executive director of the MSU Alumni Association. He has an undergraduate degree from the school. What took place at Michigan State and to other female gymnasts in the United States at the hands of Nasser is simply sickening.

On Wednesday, an Ingham County judge sentenced Nassar to a minimum of 40 years in state prison at the end of a weeklong hearing.

DeVos confirmed the investigation Friday.

Nassar was a Michigan State sports doctor from 1997 to 2016.

The university's president and athletic director have resigned, and on Friday U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos confirmed that the Department of Education is investigating the matter and pledged to "hold MSU accountable for any violations of federal law".

Nassar is accused of molesting dozens of women and girls for years.

The scandal at Baylor may indicate how the NCAA might proceed with Michigan State. "And it's no answer to say, 'Well, there's never been anything this heinous before.' Either NCAA rules apply to sexual assaults or they don't".

What is equally sickening is the knowledge we all gained at the trail that there were more than one, two or even three opportunities for Nassar's evil to be stopped on the campus of Michigan State no less.

Nassar has been sentenced to decades in prison.

MSU Athletic Communications announced a meeting for the media at 11 a.m. Friday. Trustees plan to discuss the presidential transition.

"As tragedies are politicized, blame is inevitable", Simon wrote in her resignation letter. They seek more changes.
